Feeling fall with Madewell

Let's digress from the current season (which is summer, guys; it's definitely still summer--at least here in the desert... don't mind those mild temperatures, the warmth is coming back...). Anyway. FALL! It's coming. Every single style blogger has mentioned it within the past week, I know. As much as I'm excited for my fall outfits (I'm bringing it, you guys; my archives are going to look very sad), I'm not completely prepared to say goodbye to summer. What I am prepared for, though, is planning out my fall purchases. Madewell has been on their game lately; I'm swooning over sooo many new arrivals! From cozy knits to luscious leather, my wishlist has been growing every week. It doesn't help that now I have a local store to pick up my goodies at! ;) Today, I'm sharing with you a few of my favorites.

{Skinny Skinny Sateen Jeans}


I tried on these pants in store today because I've been wanting a pair of skinny burgundy pants for fall. I am in love with these! They are the perfect color and are sooo comfortable. I can't wait to pick them up, put them on, and never take them off. (FYI: I took a size larger than my usual skinny skinny size!)

{Heathered Jersey Dress}


This dress is only available online, but nevertheless--it's an amazing, simple grey dress. I will be watching for a good sale like a hawk so I can snatch this up. A dress like this has been topping my list for months now! It is simple enough to transition well from season to season.

{Texturework Sweater}


After I decided that the sweater I owned in a similar color was poorer quality than I wanted, I've been on the lookout for a replacement. Well, I think I found the replacement! I tried this on in store and fell in love. It's so soft and cozy. I'm also loving the marled sage and retro navy colorways, so I may just have to own more than one of this sweater!

{High Riser Skinny Skinny Jeans in Atlantic}


I wasn't going to try any jeans on while in store today...that is, until I saw the photo in the dressing room of the models wearing the high riser skinny skinny jeans. I decided to try on the jeans in atlantic, this wonderful dark blue color (they are darker in real life than in the photo). They fit like a dream! I was shocked that the waistband didn't gape at the back like a lot of waistbands on high-rise jeans do on me. Because of that, they were added to my wishlist. (As with the jeans above, I took a size larger than my regular skinny skinny size!)

{The Transport Tote}


Everyone and their mother has the English saddle colorway of this tote, but I cannot get enough of the dark cabernet! Ah! So, so perfect for fall. While I didn't see this exact tote in store, I did see the color, and it is so beautiful. This bag has officially made it to my wishlist. Good thing my birthday is coming up soon!

{Lbt-Lbt Noise Short-sleeve Sweatshirt in Stripe}


This short-sleeve sweatshirt by Lbt-Lbt ("Libertine Libertine") is what dreams are made of: perfect stripes and a comfortable fit for cooler months. While I would pay full price for it if I could, I've been anxiously awaiting a sale for quite a while now. I'm hoping a sale happens soon (and that the sweatshirt lives up to my dreams, since I wasn't able to find it in store).

Bonus! Here's a crappy photo of me in the fitting room wearing the skinny skinny sateen jeans and the texturework sweater! I love how they look together. :)
